I completed chapter 23 today. I'm hoping to complete chapter 29 tomorrow and then 30 on Wednesday. They syllabus skips around a bit and that's okay with me because when the class is over I will be reading the chapters that were not covered in class. In fact, it's all I can do to soak up the entire book. It's that amazing!
This book is fueling my Christian faith like no other book has done. Seriously, if you don't have Bible Doctrine: Essential Teachings of the Christian Faith by Wayne Grudem in your home library..you may want to think about getting it..I promise you that it will totally fuel your faith.
Chapter 23 - Sanctification (Growth in Likeness to Christ) - How do we grow in Christian maturity? What are the blessings of Christian growth?
Chapter 29 - Gifts of the Holy Spirit (I): General Questions - What are spiritual gifts? How many are there? Have some gifts ceased? How do we seek and use spiritual gifts?
Chapter 30 - Gifts of the Holy Spirit (II): Specific Gifts - How should we understand and use specific spiritual gifts?
I also completed this week's homework and next week's homework for women's Bible study. We're studying the book of Hebrews. I love every bit of it. I just can't get enough of the Gospel.
You're probably wondering why I'm trying to get all of my homework done early. Well, it's because I want to be able to kick back a little towards the end of the week. I'm also trying to get all our papers together for our tax appointment. Yep, I'm the accountant in this house. It's up to me to make sure we have all our ducks in a row by the end of the week.
We are taking the kiddos to a concert on Friday. Toby Mac is expected to perform along with some other Christian musicians. My kids probably know all the words to all the songs that are played on K-Love; therefore, they will be jamming out at the concert on Friday.
My birthday is on Saturday. I have no idea what Don has planned for me. I guess I'll have to wait and see. And now you know why I'm trying to get all my homework done early!
